Texprint invites leading industry figures to judge four TEXPRINT® AWARDS: the Body Prize, awarded for the best fashion fabric design in any discipline; the Space Prize, awarded for the best fabric design for interiors and donated by The Clothworkers' Foundation; the Colour Prize, awarded for the best use of colour; and the Pattern Prize, awarded for the most creative pattern and donated by Liberty Art Fabrics

The judges, some of whom work internationally and fly in often just for the day, meet the designers at the Texprint London exhibition. Here they review portfolios, talk at length to the designers, and deliberate carefully, before making their final decisions and announcing the short lists. 

The Miroglio Texprint Award for Digital Innovation, donated by Miroglio Textile Srl, and The Woolmark Company Texprint Award, donated by The Woolmark Company, will be judged and presented at PremièreVision Designs, Paris, in September. 

 

2015 Awards also include:

Arts Thread: Arts Thread online portfolios for the TEXPRINT® 2013 Top 50 designers selected at interview stage.

Mode Information: All 24 designers to be given a one year subscription to a professional magazine of their choice from a selection specified by Mode Information.
